Welsh Government will shortly be commencing a procurement exercise for the delivery of the Jobs Growth Wales+ Youth Programme Framework Agreement ("JGW+ Programme") to provide support to young people who are not in education, employment or training. Through individualised support the JGW+ Programme will equip young people aged 16 to 18 years with skills, qualifications, work experience and subsidised work to enable them to progress to learning at a higher level, an apprenticeship or into sustained employment at the earliest opportunity. The JGW+ Programme will commence on 1 March 2022 and run for 4 years until March 2026 (with the option of an extension of up to 2 additional years). The JGW+ Programme will be procured under the light touch regime, implemented through regulations 74 - 77 as applied to Schedule 3 services of the Public Contracts Regulations 2015 (PCR 2015) using a quasi-open procedure. Please be advised that costs are fixed as set out in the Programme Specification, as such, there is no Commercial evaluation element to this tender.

Renewal Options

Option to extend the Agreement by up to an additional 2 (two) years on a 1 (one) year plus 1 (one) year basis if applicable subject to confirmation from the Client of budget availability and service requirements and subject to the successful Bidder meeting the requirements of the JGW+ Programme Specification. Contractors will need to be aware of current and emerging Welsh Government policy and commit to a flexible approach that is capable of responding to changing Ministerial priorities and labour market requirements. From time to time there may be a requirement to deliver new services aimed at supporting young people. Changes to the Programme Specification will be implemented in accordance with paragraphs A27. to A35. of the JGW+ Programme Specification and must be instructed in accordance with the process set out at Schedule 2 of the Framework Agreement. For the absolute avoidance of doubt, no variation or additional work in relation to the JGW+ Programme will amount to a modification of the overall nature of the JGW+ Framework Agreement.
